Love Poems & Poetry

Blessed with Love has published a number of my love poems.  These poems are dedicated to Angela Lee. the love of my life, who walked off a bus 39 and half years ago on September 7, 1982.  But, as some of you might know, I first dreamt of meeting her in 1974.

See “Dreamgirl” postings and other love poems below.  None of these published poems are directly about the “dream” though.  My love life has been like a fairy tale romance that is still go strong.

Enjoy.

Seeing Your Love

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hot

Coffee
In the morn
Great start today
Filling me with joy
Contemplating the news
Drinking a morning cup of joe
Thinking about my life and love
Waiting for the love of my life to wake up
When she wakes up, she fills me with such love.
She talks to me my day begins to fill
With plans and many things, we must do
I smile and finish my drink
Still in awe of her beauty,
Still just madly in love.
Ever since we met
Just wondering
How I met
Her that
Day.

Love Jones

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: My first attempt at writing a love rock song.

When I first saw you in September
A date that I will always remember
I knew then on that date
I had truly met my fate.

For I knew I had fallen under your spell
You had cast a mad love spell on me
Your mojo was working overtime on me
And I would be forever your love slave.

I had to have you; had to make you mine,
For You are everything I longed for
Everything I was dreaming of
You are my everything.

Chorus

I have the love Jones baby
And I got it bad
I have the love Jones, baby
Can’t you see just what you to me?
Love Jones baby, Love Jones for you.

when you walked off that bus
you entered my life
and soon became my wife
and everything changed.

from that moment on
I was you and You are me
It was 39 years since you walked
Into my life tearing it upside down.

and for 39 years together
every single day, every hour, every minute
every single second whenever I look at you
I fell madly in love again
and again and again.

just the way it is
between you and me
for you are my love angel
sent to rescue me.

Chorus

I have the love Jones baby
And I got it bad
I have the love Jones, baby
Can’t you see just what you to me?
Love Jones baby, Love Jones for you.

when I first saw you there
your cosmic love vibrations
sent me flying to the moon
to Jupiter and beyond.

flying on the back
of your love
returning me once more
to your waiting embrace.

Your love came me such a thrill
the thrill has never ended
like a fine bottle of wine
it gets better and better.

I can no longer imagine
A life without you by my side
And if you go before I do
I will surely soon follow you.

When we met that cosmic date
I knew that I had met my soul mate
And soon we would be together
Until the end of time.

Chorus

I have the love Jones baby
And I got it bad
I have the love Jones, baby
Can’t you see just what you to me?
Love Jones baby, Love Jones for you.

You are my love drug
I do not need any other

With your love by my side
I do not need alcohol
I do not need acid
I do not need booze

I do not need Cialis
I do not need cocaine
I do not need heroin
I do not need magic mushrooms

I do not need speed
I do not need Viagra
for You are all that I ever needed
You are indeed my love drug

Chorus

I have the love Jones baby
And I got it bad
I have the love Jones, baby
Can’t you see just what you to me?
Love Jones baby, Love Jones for you.

We first met one night in September
I knew that I had met my fate
A date I always cherish
The date you came to me
You walked off that bus
Out of my dreams
Becoming
To be

Love Drug

Explaining love to a space alien

allien
allien

 

 

 

 

 

One day
a space ship landed
near my house
and a tall alien

Dressed in silver,
accompanied by three shorter aliens
came to my house.

and told me they were
conducting a survey
of the earth,

and had some questions for me
they had picked me
because I was considered
a subject matter expert

on the topic of love
which was one
of the five things

that they could not understand
about humanity
no one else
among the 1 million intelligent species
had such a concept.

I asked what were the other things
that they did not understand?

They said,

“hmm Donald Trump

hmm Donald Trump
how and why he is President
and why so many people
still support him?

Second is God
your race has more gods
than any other race
and no one else

has heard of your god
or Allah or Jesus for that matter
and on the face of it
the whole resurrection thing
makes no sense.

makes no sense
third is gun violence
why is the US
you have to do a strip search
to get on the plane or train

and nowadays a temperature health screening
yet you can not ban guns
can not enact universal gun checks

even though 90 % support it
and why can terrorists
still can buy guns?

fourth climate change
every other successful culture

every other successful culture
went through something similar
and evolve their politics and culture
and overcame it

and finally, the issue of love
You see in the whole universe
There is no such concept
of romantic love
In most cultures there are marriages
and most people are bisexual
and group marriages are the norm

and love is seen as merely sexual attraction
and most people pick their partners
from computer-generated links

From computer-generated links
for we have figured it all out

But you persist in denying
that love is nothing but
a chemical DNA thing

Explain to me
since you are considered
the most romantic man
in the world

What the hell is love?”

I told him that we would discuss
the other issues later over a beer

as I was hardly the authority
but would be happy to share my thoughts

and they agreed to that

but said again

“Tell us what is this thing
you called love?”

I said,

“it comes down to this
Love is mysterious
love is magic

There is a certain zen element
Zen element
to love

a certain Taoist element as well
to it as well

those who can define it
have never experienced it

and those who have experienced it
can never describe it

One can say a few things
love happens
When you least expect it

Love creeps up on you
Love happens
When you are washing dishes
drinking wine

Drinking wine
Dancing at a club
Making love
for the first time
Or the 10,000th time

And every time
is different
then the time before

Love happens when you give up
searching for love
waiting for love
wishing for love
wishing for the one

then one day
the one walks out
of your dreams

and into your life
becoming your wife

My wife one day
was berating me
for all my myriad faults

All my sins against her
My omissions and commissions
Malfeasance and misfeasance

Things I had done
and things I had failed to do

All of which I acknowledge
and apologized for

But finally, I had enough

I said

Well if I am so bad
so horrible
so evil a creature
and a person you hate
so much

Why the hell did you marry me?

She laughed

“temporarily insanity

and I am still insane
twenty-five years later.

We both laughed
and fell in love
again

as always
We fall in love
with each other

Every day
Every moment
Every second

Every second
It dawned on me
I had the answer to the question

And that my friends
Is the true unknowable madness

The true zen spirit of love
Well that was interesting

And I think we begin
to understand you all
a bit more

You are indeed
the most interesting people
in the whole universe

so let’s go out and have a beer
we are dying to try that
as we hear

You have the best beer
in the universe
and the best coffee too

And the best weed

nd so we went
and had our beer
and coffee

and talked all night long
discussing everything.

They told me about the universe
and our place in it
and their plans for us.

I Want You Right Now

lovers afterwards
lovers afterwards

I still want you
More than anything else in life

I want you
I want you next to me

I want you every moment
Of every minute
Of every day

I need you in my life
I need your wisdom
I need your kindness
I need your beauty

I need your special wit
And I need your ability
To deal with this cruel world

I need you to save me
From the demons
That haunts my Soul

For you are my soul mate
The only person

Whoever completed me
And made life worth living

Where Do You Where Do You and I Begin?

lovers in tokyo

lovers in tokyo

 

I woke up one day and realized
I no longer knew
where you and I began

and where you and I ended
we had become almost one

We talked in half sentences
Knowing what the other wanted
and knowing how it would end

We ate the same foods with some resistance
because I still crave an old-fashioned American meal
but still, we were becoming more and more the same

and I feared losing myself
In your embrace
and becoming you
and you becoming me

and this fear of losing me
in the ocean of us
overwhelms me at times

but I know I will always
Return to your arms

because I cannot live
A moment without you at my side

and I know you are the same
we feel each other’s inner pain
we feel each other’s outer pain

and our history has merged
into one

and is that not the secret
of a long marriage?

Have I figured it all out
in the end, does it come to this
a merging of two souls and two bodies?

I don’t have the answers
But I don’t have any more doubts
or regrets with the path I have taken

I still look forward
to waking up each morning

Seeing you there
and knowing that every day
we have together
is a gift that I will cherish

Until my dying breath

Valentine Day Ode

lovers hugging
lovers hugging

 

 

Ever since I met you, my dear
My life has not been the same

Before I found you
I was lost, sad, and lonely
Going nowhere as fast as possible.

I was stuck
Did not know what direction to pursue
At the intersection, watching life go by.

I was lost, lonely,
and full of despair
Then one day I saw you.

The girl of my dream,
Standing there on the side of the road.
I was filled with terror
Could not speak.

What if you refused to see me?
What if you denied
my protestations of love.

What if you walked away?
Never to be seen again.
I knew I had to do something!

I had to do it then and there!
And then you came up to me…

Your voice
The voice of an Angel
Sweat, full of light
Fun and entire sunshine.

Ever since the day, I met you
Whenever I feel down and depressed
I look at your picture.

And sunshine fills my heart
And I am confident, happy, and ready.

To face all of life’s travails
As long as I have your love
And your support.

I can overcome all obstacles
And face all dangers.

Together we can do almost anything
Without you, I will be lost
In the swamp of despair.

My dear
Please stay with me
Forever to the end of time.

Let us journey forward
Never looking back
My love, my life.

The sun in the sky
The moon that lights
my dreams at night
The stars that beacon far away.

Thanks to the Gods above
For bringing you into my life
And I promise I will love you
Forever and a day.

Just to see your face
Is heaven itself
Just to hear your voice
Is all I ever need

My love, my soul mate
Hurry back to me.
We have so much
loving to do.

So much living to do
So much to do together.

Walking confidently
Boldly into the future.

Without you
All is nothing
But dust.

With you
Everything is possible.

My love
Until I see you again
A thousand kisses.

And a million thoughts of love
That will have to suffice
Until we are reunited

My love, my darling,
My life and dreams

Hurry back to rescue me
From the despair and darkness
All around me

Until then
I salute you

Oh Queen of my Heart
General of Love
Captain of my Soul.
